Fig. 5

The respiratory exchange ratio (RER) and energy expenditure (kcal/h) in female C57BL/6J mice fed either a regular chow (Control) or a low-carbohydrate high-fat (LCHF) diet. a Mice fed the LCHF diet showed lower RERs in both the active (dark) phase and inactive (light) phase compared to control mice. b Energy expenditure was lower in mice fed the LCHF diet in the inactive (light) phase compared to control mice. No difference was seen in the active (dark) phase between the diet groups. Data are presented as mean ± SD with n = 4 in each group. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001 vs. control
